ALL IN THE DETAILS: Queen of the Jungle

Winter tends to be a very bland season for our closets. We put away the bright colors of our summer palettes and let black, white and all sorts of neutrals take over. Sometimes this allows our outfits to look simple and classic, but other times we fear they look just boring and too basic.

This Fashionista found a way to stick to the neutrals, but beat the boring looks. Her animal print scarf makes the perfect statement in her look while still bringing out the best in the neutral tones she is wearing.

Animals prints like cheetah, zebra, alligator and even giraffe have really made appearances over the years in all kinds of collections and seasons to change up the classic patterns we wear like stripes or floral. Giorgio Armani in his spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection used various animal prints to add to neutral dresses and jackets that would have otherwise been very simple.

The best part of animal prints is that they make a very neutral statement. You do not need to worry about conflicting colors or truly matching anything. This Fashionista makes her cheetah print scarf truly complement the rest of her look with a big, comfy white cardigan and her black combat boots.

She rocks her animal print boldly with her scarf, yet it doesn’t have to stop there. We can sport small amounts of animal prints in our shoes and even bags that we choose to complete our outfits with. I personally believe there is truly nothing better to spice up a neutral look with than neutral patterned accessories!

How To: Want to rock an animal print but not feeling bold enough? Try a pair of cheetah print flats to make a simple statement or even dress up this look!
